#1 Series II power steering

Post by MWSERIESII » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:16 pm

Hi all, can anyone kindly advise how the PAS pump is installed to a series II E-type FHC? I cannot find any information or pictures on the complete PAS installation for a series II (especially how the pump is installed) in any manuals including the Jaguar WSM. The PAS hoses and steering rack (which I have overhauled) are listed but the pump and reservoir appear to be a mystery. Could someone kindly shed some light on this conundrum? PS. The PAS rack was installed when I bought the car as a rolling project but the pump and reservoir were in the "parts" package! Regards Mick W

Hi Mick, is the rack you have orriginal to the car or is it an aftermarket one,possibly Vicaridge?
If the latter it will show obvious signs of having bits sawn/ground off.
I have bought, but not yet used, a Vicaridge one so have the instructions and could send you details and photos of how they mount the pump they use. This is a modern one used on many cars and easily available on eBay.
It mounts on a modified left hand engine mount and uses a separate reservoir.
If I can help then pm me. I am near Bridport if you want to see it.
Why am I fitting power steering? Because I wanted to fit a smaller steering wheel, fatter tyres and my wife has delusions of thinking she’s going to drive the car. Regards Michael.
